Fortunately the driver managed to put on the brake with sufficient force to ease the collision. The stones were dislodged from the end'of the culvert. Two passengers in the car received a severe bump. Christmas and Neov Year passed off very quietly.

THE New Year was ushered in auspiciously, as the Good Tern plars think, by an all-round addition. to the price of beer and spirits. The-pint of beer is to be fourpence instead of 3d, and there is also to be an in crease of a penny in glasses of spirits. " Glasses " of beer, "long-slcevers,''" and other mea sures .which are not statutorily fixed, as is the pint, are to. re main at the old figure. This means that the size of the " glass " may be diminished to make up for the increased cost of the liquor. One hotelkeep er, in the course of the contro versy, publicly .stated that a publican who did not know how K to adjust the charges to the cost of his goods had mistakeni his calling. The hotelkeepler 2may sell at the old .rates if he chooses, and soie of those who believe in small profits and quick returns, and who are carrying on business in crowde...

The Holidays. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 5 January 1915
The Holidays. ALrROUGH the Christmas and New Year festivities happened along on days of the week which permitted of longer holidays than usual, the weather conditions were sadly against their success. First along came the welcome rain which, acceptable as it was from all other points of view, spoiled the first two or three days; then came the boisterous winds pre vailing over the remainder of the holidays; so that many were frus trated in their plans for excursions ; and those who braved the elements, found no comfort or'pleasure in their outings. People are now once more settling down to the business cares of of life, and can look forward only to Eastertide: to compensate them for the disappointments of" Christmas and the New Year.

Sick Headache: WOMEN-SUBJECT TO FREQUENT THROBBING, BURSTING HEADS. "My sister first recommended Dir. 'Morse's Indian Root Pills to my no tice when subject to distressing Bill ous Headaches," writes Mrs. Annie Gill of 98 Victoria Street, Lewisham, N.S.W. "I tried many assumed reme dies for this complaint, but found no thing to, equal Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills. Latterly I have been freed from my former Bilious bouts, but, nevertheless, I consider it expe dient to, keep tb m in my house in case of need. I am a mother of two children and o'er you my permission to use tb.hi testimony for publica tion.'" There's' many a cause. Men are not often troubled by Headaches; when they are it is generally due to Biliousness or Indigestion. But ,women have headaches which seem peculiar to their sex, frequent throb bing headaches. Does it not seem that ..such headaches peculiar to women must be at once related to womanly disease? Women who:suf f:er with diseases peculiar to the sex do not reali...
Garden and Field Calendar for January. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 5 January 1915
Garden and Field Calendar for January. By A. Lansdowpe, Seeduman, GOeullurna As we expected, the weather has been unsettled with some heavy rain falls and the heat has been a re cord for December. tphroughout the State, but the frequent lihowers coun teracted the effects of sun and wind, and crops are all promising heavy yields. The soil is in good order for cropping, and all available land should be sown with something that will be useful for green feed, en silage or green manuring. Dairy men and others cannot possibly have too much in the way of food supplies in the face of a- general shortage and certain high prices. Maize or corn is splendid.for ensil age or green feed, and grows very quickly. Mangels or mangel wurzel give immense yields, and are grand for dairy-cows, pigs and all stock; they should be largely grown..Spray ing for cherry tree slug, so often neglected, is very important; the slug causes the leaves to turn rusty and fa'l- off, and destroys the vital ity of the ,tr...

Majura. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 5 January 1915
SMajira. E?LL, MIr. Editor, my long silence is due to the fact that I have been away on holidays carrying bricks, slinging the sledge hammer, etc. However, I am back again and feel quite refreshed after the enjoyable time I have had, and hope to be able for a while longer to keep the news of this fast going back village up to you. A while back we had a flourishing Young People's Club hero, but it seems to have gone hung. Several'attompts have been made to get a move on with the, same result-each time failure and everything- seems to have gone dead. The acquisition of the wheat by the Go vernment is highly commendable, and is approved by the majority of the people and considered the best move yet made by the Government.' Of course its hard on some of the .small men that are lucky enough to .have some wheat and want to make as much as they can out of it, but that is not the way to look at matters. The small men must always be made suffer to get at the big fellow, who without a doubt, ...
